Finding Inner Strength

Monday, March 11, 2013

I had an emotional upset yesterday that actually made me lose my hunger (appetite sounds better but I had no hunger). I don't remember the last time I was so upset that I had NO desire to eat. I actually had to force myself to eat a little bit for lunch and dinner so that I wouldn't get a migraine from low blood sugar. It was kind of nice in a way, not having any desire for food, but I would not recommend that kind of stress in order to avoid eating.

This is going to be a continual source of stress in my life for a while, not of my doing, but you don't abandon your friends when the going gets rough. I am glad I have responded by losing my appetite instead of turning to emotional eating. I am going to have to stay on top of my eating and exercise to make sure I do not allow this to affect my life changes for the negative. I have to find a way to be supportive without sabotaging my own life changing progress.

I am a strong person and I can do this! emoticon

    Eating or not eating never solves emotional, friendship, romantic, money, car, or income tax problems. Your food choices CAN fix or create some health problems. That's about it.

    Perhaps as this problem continues for your friend, you can tell yourself that you need to keep up your health and strength so you can be at your best for your friend.

    Become the tower of strength that your friend needs by eating properly, getting your 8 hours, drinking your water, getting in some physical activity, etc.

    PS all of those things might help your friend deal with this crisis also, if he/she would eat properly, get some rest, drink water, go for a walk, get 8 hours sleep, etc

    Good luck.
